About the Program
Starting with pilgrimage of Pearl S. Buck in her former residence, following her footprint to find the mystery how Zhenjiang became the city of romance besides Southern Yangtze River. The picture of Long WANG’s figure working hard in the fields in the Good Earth (of which most of stories were taken from the countryside of China)written by Pearl S. Buck, the first woman American Noble prize winner in literature ,is still haunting around our mind. The former US president Nixon ever praised her as “a human bridge connects the cultures of Chinese and Western”. This magic good earth produces many influential geniuses, such as the author of science masterpiece Dream Rivulet Diary Kuo SHEN in North Song dynasty, the compiler of the first Chinese poems collection Zhaoming Analects – prince Tong XIAO in Post Liang danasty, the compiler of the first Chinese literature critique The Literary Mind and the Carving of Dragons/Carving Dragon in the Core of Culture – Xie LIU in South Dynasty. There lived many other famous hermit artists, such as Yong DAI,Fu MI,etc. There are every reason for international literature fans to pay a pilgrimage to Zhenjiang – the birthplace of lunar Valentine’s Day(Double Sevevth Festival) and the legendary of Lady White Snake.
